Well well well, look who decided to show up. Hey there! Guess who’s back in the country? And jetlagged? And hasn’t unpacked? Me! Yep, I took the 16-hour plunge and made it back in Australia safely. Since then, I probably have been home for a total of 15 minutes- the rest spent catching up with the people I love. Honestly the “coming home” aspect of travelling is, unusually, something I enjoy- it brings a newfound appreciation for the things you left behind. Except for 40-degree days with 70% humidity. I FEEL LIKE I AM SWIMMING 24/7. Thankfully this lil number is quite breezy and equipped with sneaky sheer panels and cutouts. Also I apologise for my poor ironing job. I was melting ok?!
So what’s new? What’s up? I guess I gave myself a hiatus for a bit- my inbox is a disaster, as quite a few people on tumblr have ~so kindly~ pointed out- but really, it only made me realise how much I need and want to be doing this. Also, my new years resolution? Video. Youtube, I’m coming for you. Speaking of which- please leave video requests down below, I don’t know where to start. I love you all to bits. It’s good to be back.
Also- yes this post title is a Taylor Swift song and I’m not even sorry she is a great artist ok?!

Hey there! This post title is unusually fitting seeing as it feels like these past few weeks have been a kind of daydream.. and not always a good one. My little sister, Adele, landed herself in hospital, our flights were rescheduled and delayed, we lost our luggage… basically everything that could have gone wrong, did. But I’m back in LA and all is right with my corner of the world. And, as you may have seen on my Instagram, I’ve managed to do some awesome things (ahem, photo shoot) whilst being here and can’t wait to share them with you!
These photos are kind of a link to my last post, shot at a childhood home on the farm. The nostalgia is very real when I’m in Texas. It’s late and we’re going to Disneyland tomorrow- spose I should get some sleep? Updates coming very soon, watch this space for plenty of photos of me with Mickey Mouse ears. Much love xx
For me, visiting the farm is always wonderfully nostalgic. It’s natural that as we grow older, the magic falls away from things- we’re no longer awestruck by oddly-shaped clouds or rope swings. But this place never seems to lose its charm. Granted it wasn’t as easy to balance on this thing- swear words may have been said- but all of the childlike ~feels~ made it worth it.
As for what I’ve been wearing? My hashtag #toocoldforanaustralian wasn’t lying, it really is freaking freezing for my little Queensland self. Pretty sure this outfit was the first time I’ve seen my bare legs in a while. Probably going to buy a razor sometime soon. My default winter palette of monochrome is in full force, but I’m trying to keep it interesting with texture and silhouette. So much yes for pointed toe booties and a vintage leather skirt.
Flying back to LA in 2 days so trying to soak up all the Texas while I can. And eat all the Texas while I can. If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go dream about cinnamon rolls and enchiladas now. Goodnight lovers! xo

Nothing like raiding your grandmother’s closet for something new. Luckily mine’s always been a pretty stylish lady and I’ve now permanently adopted this pink silk blouse. Thanks gram. Toughened it up with what Mum’s deemed as my “skanky-hoe” jeans (she’s not a big fan- did you realise?) and a pair of boots with a slightly western feel. I am in Texas, after all.
Merry Christmas, loves, for yesterday! I hope you all had a beautiful day, wherever you are with whoever you’re with. I ate a lot of cinnamon rolls and sat around the fire and got the new Rookie yearbook and fluffy pyjamas. I’m very content. Australian Christmas is great but there’s something nice about actually being able to wear flannelette pyjamas and drink hot chocolate. Without passing out from heat exhaustion. How was your Christmas?
After posting this on Instagram I had a lot of requests for a post about this makeup look. Let me know in the comments if you’d like to see it, I’d be stoked to put it together! I’ve gone a little overboard at Sephora recently and have some funky new products to put on my face. So leave me a comment and happy holidays! xx
